SSH on Extreme and Cisco Devices

Enable SSH on Extreme Devices

A key will be generated. To upload a public key simply use sftp or scp to upload key. But be sure to change the extension to .ssh for example id_rsa.pub will be id_rsa.ssh on the switch. Also you can assign a key to a user by simply appending the username to the key file for example admin.id_rsa.pub.

Extreme switches have a limitation of only being able to use RSA or DSA keys. Recommend to use RSA 2048
